It appeared as though we were dumping fuel in the stack before joining the approach pattern
Interestingly an aircraft appeared to takeoff after us on 27R, which is unusual in that normally one runway is used exclusively for takeoffs and the other for landings. Perhaps we were landing at the runway switchover time, or the aircraft taking off was a VIP aircraft being fast tracked out of Heathrow.

My last trip in Club World back to the UK the entertainment failed and when we disembarked at Gatwick BA staff handed each of us a claim form and we got £80 in vouchers to spend on duty free the next trip.

In the early morning, until 7am, LHR is allowed to use both runways for landings to help with the high volume of arrivals.

Not impressed with the cheese cake being served with the starter!

Where else would you suggest they keep them to warm up? I doubt there is room in the galley while they perpare the main courses.
